** Welcome! Thanks so much for stoppin' by. This is where I share my luv for papercrafting of varied sorts, making mini albums, designing kits, and sharing my meager talents with the world. Come on in, let's chat while we make and share lots of lovely things together!**
My first in a series of classes over the next several weeks. I'll be sharing with you new ways to transform envelopes, and envelope styles of various sizes into wonderful, spacious, and useable mini albums. I will also be sharing various techniques and styles I use in the process of putting together my mini albums. The class is at 6:00 pm EST tonight. Times will vary from week to week. I will have them posted ahead of time on my ustream channel. I will be working with 6x6 decorative papers tonight. So grab all of your goodies and meet me there tonight!
The video below is the project we will be working on tonight :0)

This is the sock monkey I had Lynn of "Handmade Creations by Lynn", to make for my granddaughter. I made a flower for her head and a cute tu-tu for her to wear. I love how she has turned out :o) I think Jasmine will love her too don't ya think?!
I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable.

I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time.

Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
